...just blocks from the Wrigley Building and Tribune Tower, it offers impressive views of the Chicago River and the heart of downtown.



The Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront, formerly Hotel 71, is set in the northern part of The Loop, with a great location close to hundreds of dining and shopping options, and steps from the Theatre District.



You won’t find the same attention to style here that you will in independent boutique hotels — it’s largely beige with splashes of color to and fro — but you also won’t want for comfort.
